This old-fashioned mock chicken dish, actually made of tender perfectly seasoned pork, is one that my mom relied on often during 55 years of marriage. The delicious gravy is so good over mashed potatoes. -Barbara Hyatt, Folsom, California

"My family likes this meal. Fast easy and

I guess comfort food on a cold evening."

"I've made with and without skewers. It was good both ways. Will continue to make without as it was much easier. I did add extra broth because we love gravy."

"My family has loved this recipe since I found it in Country Woman Magazine more than 12 years ago. I don't thread the pork onto skewers - just leave it cubed. I also serve it with rice and stir fried veggies on the side. It's my version of a Chinese dinner. It is a great dish for family or company."

"In general this recipes is really good, but then again anything taste good with onion soup mix on it : ) I have made this serveral times over the years and it always tastes great. Only things I do different is I just use pork chops instead of putting them on kebabs and fry them with double the garlic salt and pepper. Then I just drizzle enough olive oil to brown the chops on both sides so i feel better using a healthier oil and less of it. And to thicken the gravy I usually add a little cornstarch or flour leftover from the coating."

"Oh My Gosh this turns out SO GOOD, I'm not a fan of pork so tried making it once using chicken and it didn't taste good, so I don't make it as much as I would like due to the pork."
